You may need to check your spark plugs, or even the distributor(if equipped with one, not to familiar with this car), and your coil pack, you may not be getting a spark!

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio


It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

1993 lumina euro is blowing black out of tailpipe smells gas


Black smoke is unburned gas. If the car is running fine besides the black smoke, it's most likely the Coolant Temperature Sensor. The part is roughly $20 and an easy fix.

PS- I'm guessing your check engine light is on...

White smoke tells me that you have entered the land of "blown head gasket" Is temp normal and coolant full? If not, you are definitely there. Job is not difficult for a reasonably experienced tech, if you're not, either get a manual and follow instructions very carefully, or, bring it to a reputable shop. Parts are under 300... Don't forget to replace cylinder head bolts (they might look OK but are not to be re-used.)

2000 F-250 7.3 diesel, cuts out runs rough no power


Well, you have to let diesels warm up before you drive them so the engine gets warm and it may not sound right at first because if its not warm the compression gets off and doesnt fire right. If you try to give it too much gas before its warm, extra diesel will get in the cylinders and misfire. Then when it does fire, there is a lot of extra fuel in it so that causes the smoke and smell. You should always let it warm up for a bit before driving when you havent driven it for a while.
